Theres mice and roach problems in maybe 1/3 to 1/2 the houses in JC. And rats(big ones at that) also. Some lady used to feed the stray dogs with a box full of dog food in Greenville. At night we used to go down to check the rats eating from the box(case of beer box). There were 100s of them we used to shine the spotlight on them. And to boot they are not scared of anyone. Good luck bring some traps and raid and u should be alright. Now with the urban living story out of the way, decent areas of Jersey City are the downtown area(the best), then I would say the western slope area of the heights, west of the blvd and north of Manhattan Avenue. I would say most of Bayonne is good.

Stay out of Jersey City. Check out some of the recent posts about JC....there are not people bashing this city just for kicks.

Bayonne...
Downtown between 3rd and 7th Sts.
Uptown from Ave C to Kennedy Blvd from about 37th to 45th Sts is nice.

Locations - try to stay on the West side of town, as it is generally a better area to live. Downtown is a bit more quiet, and so is midtown (depending on location). Uptown is a bit more busy - but I prefer it, as it is easier for my commute.


No mice or roach problem by me - I have lived downtown, midtown & uptown in Bayonne. I have never seen a roach in Bayonne -except at a chinese restaurant once on 32nd & avenue e (which I never went back As for mice- I have never had a mouse in my house .

Schools? Schools are good. Not great- but not bad

Jobs for Nurses?(lpn) - Stay away from Bayonne Hospital- as it has had it's share of financial difficulty.
You can try St. Mary's in Hoboken- my friends work there & it is usually a 15 minute commute.

Is this restaurant still Peter's Place?
I was a Lum Chin Inn person, nothing like staggering out onto B'way after a few large cocktails...and this was during the middle of the day!

it was Peter's House, and NO! I personally was a fan of Paradise East on 440 - which I think is gone too (loved their Zombies). Lum Chin Inn was NASTY, IMHO.

Paradise East used to serve us as well.
I never thought much of their food, but then we only went there to drink.

OK, Tahiti, waaaaaay off topic...
Do you remember the place on 25th and Avenue F that would serve us drinks-to-go in big red cups.
We used to get a few Alabama Slammers!

Resident of JC here ... Good areas are Newport, Paulus Hook, Grove street (two block radius near PATH station) and in some parts JSQ.
Been here 4 years, never seen a roach/mouse in my two apartments.
Schools - depends on what you're looking for .. I don't recommend any schools here except for McNair Academic .. admissions are tough.
Jobs for nurses - not sure, but area had a couple of hospitals (Christ/JC Medical Center), so might be worth looking into.

No idea about Bayonne.

Thumbs up Mhm

Yea, JC has some bad areas if not mostly bad area... Greenville is the most depressed part of JC. Journal Square is nice, and Liberty park is in between. Try Bergen or Downtown JC. Like along York Street or near. Stay away from SW JC. Roaches are in SOME areas of JC, if your in the obviously nice part, then there will most likely be no/ or very few pest.

Bayonne, i know it has decent schools and it is a decent area. The NW part is kind of depressing but besides that i think its decent. I would prefer Bayonne over JC. Roaches might be in bayonne. only the depressing areas.
